WAI Endorsement Checklist -- DRAFT --

This is a draft of a simple checklist of things that an external auditor could use to check that a claim of endorsement of the WAI content guidelines within an organization is serious.

In other words, it should help answer the question:
What does it mean for an organization to "endorse/implement the WAI content guidelines" ?

(note that this is specific to WCAG, since endorsing ATAG or UAAG - for tool developers - is somewhat different)

ex: "all W3C specification/technical reports conform to the WCAG 1.0 level AA"
ex: "The W3C publishing rules (http://www.w3.org/Guide/Reports) for Technical Reports require that all documents must conform to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines, level Double-A (http://www.w3.org/tr/WCAG)"
